Peng Chau

Peng Chau

Peng Chau Village from a boat. The quality is not so good as I scanned this picture from a copy I made in Berlin. The picture shows Peng Chau Village. The picture was taken by Pastor Johannes Mueller, director of the Bethesda Orphanage at High Street, Hong Kong Island. The date is 1904-02-20. Mueller describes Peng Chau as a barren island with a small village an limekiln factories.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, February 20, 1904


Thank you very much for your valuable photo. Would you mind to share the name of the book if you have from Berlin? It would be very interesting to dig out more photos of Peng Chau at that time. Thanks for your help in advance.
